Are there some kind of News and Rumors about KS business model that pertains to Infinity I'm not aware of.....?
Well, Corvus Belli is running a Kickstarter right now for the Infinity-related board game Defiance, and offering specific boxes of miniatures for a decent discount (but you have to get the Defiance box to get them), and people are trying to figure out the logistics of it and what about the Kickstarter makes it possible...


If only there were a specific thread for the KS....

Another thing is that KS is risk free for both sides. If you don't meet the goals, the backers don't lose money and the company doesn't have to produce anything that nobody will buy. And if you do meet the goals, you have guaranteed customers.


If you do meet your target and then cock it up afterwards, though, it's absolutely not risk-free for the backers.


Well yeah. I suppose its more correct to say its risk free if the project falls short.

Well, that thread would specifically be about Infinity Defiance, and thus be about Defiance and reaching pledge goals and whatnot, while this one is specifically about Infinity, and more generally about Corvus Belli's leadership as it pertains to Infinity. Two games. Two threads.

I'm not too impressed with CB storytelling and scenario design, which is basically all of Defiance, I hope to be surprised, but that leaves N4 compatibility as a main draw after Defiance stops getting played on board game nights.


There's approximately zero chance of N4 using the Defiance game mechanics. <snip>

However, Carlos did mention that they may do a skirmish system at a later date using the Ariseia! / Defiance system.

...and CB has been advancing the story line steadily with releases for the overall line of games. I've always liked their background.

I was going to say something about does CB really need 3 skirmish rule sets (defiance and 2 for N4) then stopped my self and realized GW has that many at least for AoS.

With how many people complain about the complexity of the N3 rules, I'd say that yes they do. I'm all for a full N4 that's just a cleanup of N3, and an N4-lite that caters to people that love the models/settings but prefer simpler and quicker skirmish games. We knew those were coming already

It doesn't really surprise me that they're considering releasing a Defiance ruleset that uses the custom dice for people that are more familiar with boardgames/Legion/Imperial Assault mechanics. I don't think it's necessary, but I'm sure it'll be appreciated by that crowd. My only worry is that it would split up Infinity groups since you'll inevitably have some people wanting one system over another, but it may also lead to more players in an area willing to play the simpler systems. We'll have to see what N4 and whatever they were calling N4-lite shake out.

I would expect that Aristeia! will remain as is.

Defiance will morph into a skirmish game.

Defiance isn’t even available at retail, this Kickstarter is the only way to get it (unless a retailer near you gets it through the Kickstarter). I don’t think it will morph into anything.

Plus there’s already going to be Infinity and Code One (simpler Infinity). I’m not really sure where another skirmish game set in the same setting with the same models would really fit in.

That's why I love Infinity...for it's complexity. I want to drive a Ferrari, not a Mustang.

I too wish for a "cleaned up" N3 with the future N4. But if it's true that a "Natty-Lite" version of Infinity is going to come out, then I guess CB wants its Universe to expand to the masses? Hopefully it won't dilute the pool for the future. There's just something to be said about the Infinity Community that's so much better behaved than say the GW or Wizards folks....IMHO.

There's a topic. It's now focusing on the Dire Foes set I posted.

I like it, but the coat is nonsense. Also the paint job on the face isn't as great as they usually are. Having just finished my Tunguska I'm very curious what she does.

I rather like it. I'm a fan of understated as opposed to bristling with weaponry.

I like. Acon Regular, and SpecOp. Or will be, for me. Decent looking securitate. Not that I have many Nomads, currently 8, and 2 more-- Jazmin Jazz and Alternate Jazmin Jazz-- coming soon™ and a cool looking civvie. A much more interesting set than the past few. Rosie "Riveter" Munroe

Mary, being a character and a tactical uberhacker I was expecting something really special... instead we get a mini with the stiffest pose imaginable. She's just bad... total fail.
Worst month releases in years for sure.

Mary definitely isn't what I expected. Then again, I half expected her to literally be Uhau so I don't know what I was expecting.

It would make a good diorama, her backed up against a wall about to pop out of the corner and attack. It just looks awkward standing on a base with no other context, looks like she just stopped and is thinking to herself. Every time I see that mini I picture it with a thought bubble "Wait, did I leave the stove on?"

Infinity models often look a lot better on the table where they are actually backed up against walls or otherwise look like they're reacting to the terrain around them.

I kinda like the Alpha Trooper. Although I can't unsee the Chappie bot using him as cover.

Given that, the *only* reason I won't proxy Andromeda as the Allpha as N4 is next year and I hold out hope she's going to be worth taking in Aleph.

Is there a link to the new releases somewhere that I’ve missed - or is it just the new Dire Foes and hacker this month?

I dunno, but here are the releases for your viewing pleasure. Well, maybe not pleasure. Not a whole lot of high cards in this deck.






And that's not Angel level painting. One ore more of the Angelititos hold responsibility for it. Apparently.

The Dire Foes set is nice.
